Forum: forums Subject: book cannot be viewed because under review

This book cannot be viewed because it is under review by the Million Books Project. Please! Can anyone tell me what this message means? The book I really want to read, Forbidden Journey by Ella K Maillart has been uploaded and downloaded by more than 1000 people but now has this message. Will it be available again?

It was published in 1937 in London and Toronto. Author died in 1997. Therefore it is protected by copyright in the USA where these files are stored, as well as in the UK and Canada and just about everywhere else.

I should think this is the explanation of why this is being "reviewed".

Thank you for this information. I am new to this site and was amazed at my luck at finding Kini Maillart's book here. I love this book and it has been sitting in a box in storage in Australia for 13 years and I am in Singapore. I first read it when travelling the same route in 1984. I would dearly love to see/read all of her collection, including photographs - but sadly it is all in Switzerland.
